For once in my life I am admitting that I have a closet full of clothes I am really excited to wear and yet I'm not wearing them. Isn't that tragic? I take full blame. Well, partial blame. I feel the need to partially blame the renovations going on at my work for taking up so much of my time and also I need to partially blame the Vancouver weather. The rest of the blame can be put on me.

I just haven't felt motivated to take pictures of anything. From this point on I am promising all of you lovely readers that I will be taking the camera out of my purse no matter what to get some outfit photos. Or at least photos of me eating which is all I seem to be doing these days. So thanks for not abandoning me during my time of lazy.

Until then, here are some pictures from my "Inspiration Folder". You might notice that there are a few bloggers that have inspiring the pants off me lately.

Who have you been inspired by this summer? (although in Vancouver, I use the word summer very loosely)

 MK & A Olsen

Olivia Palermo


  1. Great pictures! I'm drawn right to the pretty necklaces!

  2. Nice selection! I love that golden/green long skirt of Kendi!

  3. I love that first picture of the Olson twins! I now have to find something orange and blue to pair together like that. If Vancouver's weather looks dreary, I'll just have t bring the colour haha

  4. i love what MK and Ashley are wearing!

  5. I love that camel coat Olivia is wearing with the tiers... so cute!


  6. Great inspiration post! I've also been daydreaming about Summer outfits since Vancouver isn't offering me much of a chance to try any out... Definitely been inspired by Liz from Late Afternoon as well! Always so effortlessly chic (as are you!)

    Xo Chelle

  7. i'm in love with all of these outfits so much!!

  8. great inspiring photos!!!
    love the olsen twins pic ):

  9. I AM WITH YOU! This summer in Vancouver has been anything BUT inspiring. How can the rest of North America be absolutely melting yet I am still wearing Fall/Spring coats each day?? I want a refund on this summer!


  10. The word "summer" is to be used very lightly here on the east coast as well. It's cold and wet and I am so not impressed! :-(

  11. great inspiration for the weekend! lovely

  12. hi! really like your blog, found it through Alicia, I also so you follow Kendi and Emily, as do I!! Come check mine out if you would like!

  13. Great inspiration pics! I kind of get my inspiration from everywhere. Mostly online though, because I don't feel too motivated to spend the whole day outside with this weather ;-)

    I like your blog, so I am following you now. Follow me back if you like!


  14. Olivia Palermo is my favouriteeee. She is the best dressed woman alive right now, IMO! I like that most of the photos you posted of her are of some of her more daring ensembles.

    Anyway, it was so great to finally meet you yesterday Melissa! Hope you see you again very soon!

    Have a great weekend!

  15. Wasn't it you that told me not to put pressure on myself to take photos? Take as much lazy time as you need, dearie, not that I don't want to see sexy pics of you.
